This is the brand new eics beta version. This version contains a totally rewritten system that is faster and better than the previous version. Especially speed. I also added support for regular expressions for the file check policy. You can now use power of PCRE to define more flexible and powerful policies.
Also security has been enhanced by making the checks more complete, altough number of hashes for the file has been reduced two. The reason for this is speed and that it does not really improve security having more than two different algorithms.
The new version uses sha1 and ripemd160 hash algorithms for meshing the files, which provide a quite reasonable security level.
I urge people to check the new release out and mail me all suggestions and bugs and whatevers found in the software. Oh and I also made a homepage for the software in http://eics.sourceforge.net. Enjoy!
